Thanksgiving Highlights

Well, I took a whopping 1 picture during our 10 days in Texas (and stole one from my mom). Oops. We had a great trip. I'll just list some of the highlights.
  • Getting to enjoy a delicious Cajun lunch with Darby's brother, sister-in-law, nephews, and cousin.
  • A whirlwind trip to Oklahoma City to visit Darby's grandpa (and talk briefly with Uncle Greg and cousin Beth).
  • Cooking some of the Thanksgiving meal with Debby
  • Finding out I'm awesome at Wii boxing :)
  • Mom's apple pie and Blue Bell homemade vanilla ice cream
  • Neighborhood walks with Dad, Hannah, Matt, and Tori (Matt's girlfriend)
  • A Just Dance 3 marathon with Hannah, Matt, and Tori
  • Black Friday shopping with Hannah
  • 2 Sundays at Robinson. It's always nice to go back and see everyone. Although I'm starting to feel like an old woman. Every time I go back, I just can't believe that all of the little kids I knew are now in high school or college.

It was such a fun time to be with everyone. Since we had such a long time, I really felt like we got to spend quality time with both of our families and weren't rushing from one place to another all the time. And I ate so much good food. I decided to wear the same jeans I had worn on the trip down on the way back, and they were soo tight. :/

Unfortunately, fall completely left Champaign-Urbana while we were gone. It is now decidedly winter. But, we get to go back to Texas in just a few weeks for Christmas, so it's not too bad.
